From initial arraignment through plea negotiations, and trial if necessary, it is imperative that you have the counsel of an experienced criminal attorney.

I work with business clients to establish new businesses through drafting and filing articles of incorporation, partnership agreements and operating agreements, as well drafting and executing contracts for the sale of goods and services between businesses.

Personal Injury

  • Auto Accidents
  • Dangerous Premises
  • Defective Products

If you are suffering from an injury, you may be facing a long recovery. You may also be facing lost wages, mounting medical expenses, and the loss of the ability to enjoy life the way you used to. If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence, you need someone that will work solely for you. It is in the interest of insurance companies to limit any monetary recovery. I will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive appropriate compensation for your losses. You do not have to go through it alone, I can help you make a full recovery.
